TO GOONT ALL
RATS IN U. S.
Public Health Service Undertakes
to Get Censns of Eodent
Uncle Sam jesterday undertook the Job
of counting all the rats In the United
States. Not only will the census of ro
dents be taken as accurately as It is
possible to do It, but steps wll be taken
to get a fairly close estimate of the
amount of damage that Is wroguht by
rodents each jear.
Surg. Gen. Blue, of the Public Health
Service, jesterday addressed an open
Invitation to all persons who knew anv-
tliing about rats to write to him and
tell him all they know. Whether the
Information covers rats in nrlvata
houses, stores, factories, or nnhlic
buildings win make no difference. It
will all be welcomed. Housewives who
are annoyed by the pest are Invited to
write to the surgeon general whatever
Information they have and they will
be assured of a respectful answer. The
most Interesting Information gathered
l:i on the subject will be made public
The rat Investigation Is undertaken en
tirely for the purpose of ascertaining
how great a factor the rat Is in economic
waste. Secretary of the Treasury Mac
Veagh believes for the purpose of con
serving domestic and business resources
the rat should be wiped out. In a letter
to Mr. Blue, asking that the inquiry
bo undertaken, the Secretary says that
"the extermination of the rat is un
qualifiedly advocated from the viewpoint
of economy, from the viewpoint of public
health, and from the viewpoint of com

Idea, as he was not feeling over-strong,
but he would not listen to us and said
he was never as happy as when shaking
hands with his fellow -men. The party
disbanded, and I, with a number of
others, returned to the exposition with
the President- We went directly to the
reviewing stand, and I can remember.
Just as plainly as If It all happened yes
terday, ever)' Incident that followed.
"There was a great cheer as the Presi
dent mounted to the stand and he bowed
to the crowd. My little boy, A. Washing
ton Pezet. then eleven jears old, stood by
my side in the stand, and the President
came over and patted him on the cheek.
'How are you, my little nun?1 be asked.
Would you like to shake hands with
me? He asked the boy about Peru and
how he liked Buffalo, and seemed to be
In his happiest mood. Meanwhile the
line had formed and thousands were
walUng to shake hands with the Presi
Heard Shot Fired.
"It seemed only a few minutes later,
as I was at the other end of the stand.
when I heard a shot, and some one
cried. 'My God, the President's shot.' I
saw the President fall backward. A man
with a handkerchief around his hand wad
struggling furiously In the crowd below
the stand. All was confusion. Cries of
'Kill htm! Kill him!' which I learned
afterward were directed against the as
sassin, filled the air. I thought the whole
world was seething around the stand.
"For a moment I was dazed. Then I
saw that It would be useless to try to
get to the President's side and I rushed
for medical aid. I remembered that a
few minutes before Dr. Rlxey, the Sur
geon General of the navy, had left us
at the dairy exhibit and I rushed there.
The crowd, however, was too great and
I Jumped Into a carriage occupied by
Mrs. Joseph Miller Horton, of Buffalo.
We w.ere driven to the nearest building,
where I got a telephone. I was con
nected with the dairy exhibit and for
tunately I succeeded In getting Dr.
Rlxey to the phone Immediately. I told
him of the assassination and he flew at
once to the scene. I think he was the
first doctor at the side of the President
and he took charge of the stricken Ex
ecutive. "When President McKinley hovered so
long between life and death, the news
papers said that it was I who saved the
President's life, but jou see I did only
what any other man. under the same
circumstances, would have done. Please
don't call me a hero. If you want to
say something. Just say that I am de
lighted to be back In Buffalo, that I am
greatl)' Impressed with the marvelous
growth of the clt, especially In the
business district, and as for the resi
dence section, there is none better In the
Go to Philadelphia rxt.
Senor Pezet Is a representative of the
Chamber of Commerce of Peru and the
Lima Stock Exchange.
The smoothness with which the big
Jaunt of the world's buslnes men has
gone forward. Is due to the forethought
and executive ability of John H. Fahey,
Robert J. Bottom!', and John F. O'Con
nell. of the Boston Chamber of Com
merce. They with others of the Boston
trade body are with the delegates, look
ing after every detail of the trip. They
have done their work so well that there
ls only unstinted praie from all the
members of the party.
When the tourists leave Washington
they will go to Philadelphia for a day
or two and be entertained In New York
Just before the departure of their ves
sels for Europe. It was said last night
that about one-third of the party would
remain in Washington until Wednesday
or Thursday, and go directly from here
to New York. It Is planned In New
York to entertain the party In sections
by the trade bodies representing the va
rious nationalities. For instance, the Ital
ian Chamber of Commerce in that city
will give a dinner to the Italian mem
bers, and other nationalities will vie
witk the sons of Italy to give welcome
to their countrymen.
The programme of festivities here in
Washington begins this morning with
an automobile ride around the city, vis
iting points of interest. To-morrow aft
ernoon the party will be taken to Mount
Vernon, and to-morrow night a recep
tion will be held In their honor at the
OUTING OF FRIENDS SCHOOL
vvitn tne enure corps or teachers, pu

participating In an all-day outing, the
country club and playground of the
Friends School, In Wisconsin Avenue
Northwest, was formerly opened yester
day for the school term of 1912-13. The
playground had been In use ever since
the school opened a couple of weeks ago,
but this was the first general gathering
of both grown-ups and children, and
the plan announced by Thomas W. Sld
well, principal of the school, contem
plates a series of Just such week-end
picnics for the children primarily as
counter attractions to the matinees' and
other Indcor diversions.
A baseball game between two teams,
one composed of girls and the other
of boys, waa the principal attraction
yesterday, the boys being handicapped
by being required to bat and throw with
their left hands. But even then the bov
riled up such an overwhelming number
of runs, that the official scorekeeper al
most lost count. All five tennis courts
were In use morning and afternoon, and
quite 'a few of the pupils were practic
ing for the school tennis tournament
which Is in prospecet later in the term.
At .the noon hour all of the children and
guests surrounded Mrs. Sldwell and a
